John C. Cash, 86, pioneer resident of Idaho County passed away early Tuesday at the General hospital after a lingering illness.
He was born March 6, 1860 at the farm home of his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Joseph, near Mt. Vernon, Indiana. There he grew to manhood and on February 20, 1887, he was married to Miss Eliza Ellen Bottomley. They came west by train the following year to Riparia and on to Grangeville by stage coach. After farming near Grangeville a short time, they took a homestead in the Tolo lake section. In 1923, they sold the homestead and bought a farm near Grangeville which they operated until two years ago when they moved into town.

In addition to his widow, he is survived by one daughter, Mrs. Emily Harris, Grangeville; three sons, Walter and Manford, Grangeville and Guy of Pollock; also 17 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren. Three daughters and one son preceded their father in death.
